MASTERPIECE: "WOLF HALL"
April 12, 2015  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Part 2 of 6. In last week’s premiere of this meticulously filmed and slyly adapted miniseries version of Hilary Mantel’s novels about intrigue in and around the court of King Henry VIII, we barely saw the king at all. The central figure in this drama, and the reason it seems so fresh a take on the subject, is the usually maligned Thomas Cromwell, the royal advisor played by British stage actor Mark Rylance. Tonight, though, King Henry VIII, played by Homeland star Damian Lewis, gets much more screen time, including a wonderful scene on the royal archery range. Bullseye! Check local listings.
